Yesterday, Square Enix confirmed that it will re-release Final Fantasy VII on PC at some point in the near future.
What's most interesting about this re-release is that it adds new features to the seminal role-playing game, like achievements. But Square hasn't shared any details on exactly what these achievements will comprise. So I'm offering a few suggestions. Free of charge. You're welcome, Square Enix.
Here are ten achievements I think Final Fantasy VII should have.
Get Aeris's ultimate Limit Break.
Attack and capture harmless chocobos in the wild. Imprison them in a cramped stable. Force them to breed with one another. Throw out the ones that don't turn black or gold. Use them to make yourself more powerful. Whip them into shape on the race track.
Equip one character with the following materia: Mime, MP Absorb-Master Summon, Final Attack-Phoenix, MP Turbo-Knights of the Round, Slash All, Mega All, HP Plus. Equip your other two characters with Mime. Enter combat. Press the A button once.
Realize that Final Fantasy VII isn't as good as it was when you were 12. Deny this to the grave.
Level all of your characters to 99. Master all Materia. Kill Emerald and Ruby Weapons. Brag about these accomplishments to all of your friends. Lose all of your friends.
Use Tifa in combat.
Go on a date to watch fireworks with Barret. Have a lovely time. Give him your number. Wait a day. Wonder why he hasn't called yet. Wait another day. Stare at his Facebook. Hit refresh. Wait a third day. Cry. Eat Haagen-Daaz. De-friend him on Facebook.
Re-name Aeris to Aerith.
Spend over 50 hours traveling the world of Final Fantasy VII in search for the fifth Huge Materia which you can then use to unlock a secret color of chocobo that will allow you to travel into Sephiroth's cocoon and find a key that opens the door to Sector 3 in Midgar, where you can revive Aeris for real guys seriously you read it on an AOL message board!
Convince a shopkeeper to pay you five times for the same item.
